If the words “box wine” give you a flashback to the 1980s, when the only wine that came in boxes seemed to be sweet, headache-inducing plonk, then what I’m about to say might make you question my judgement. But trust me on this: There’s some seriously delicious box wine on the market today. Yes, I did say delicious.

The box wine category may be growing, but don’t throw away your corkscrew so fast. Box packaging is ideal for wine that’s meant to be enjoyed young (an untapped box will keep for about a year). But for age-worthy wines, the bottle remains best. Here are nine boxes worth tapping into (retail prices are approximate).
